Oh, you're so happy here you may
have to log in with the companion of the Prophet sallallahu sallam said one day if disciple and the Sunnah highroad ministry hadn't vida?
He said doing very little actions but in accordance with the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is far greater and better than doing so much, but not in accordance with the Sunnah of the Prophet sunnah.
So doing very little, but holding on to the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam the way we do that will give you much more reward than doing so many actions, but not according to the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu himself, that if you even you know, get out of that out of doing something not in accordance with the Sunnah, if you get out of that without any blame, you might it's a liability. Allah Subhana. Allah says in the Quran in surah Nisa, which we wish we started today.
Allah says, Well, hello, Matthew, I want to be here like you're on the home worship that has beaten. And had they done, what they have been commanded? Would they have been instructed means following the guidance that was sent to them not inventing something from themselves, not following the way of their culture, the background of the forefathers and so on so forth.
If they follow what they have been instructed by Allah subhanaw taala Karna hai Yolanda would have been countered with me, would have been higher on now. But so for them, what should that have been? And it would have made them firm on the team would strengthen their faith, like cannot fail on the home? Why should that have beaten what even to you now home in Laguna Alima, and we would have given them from ourselves from Allah subhanaw taala a huge, enormous reward
when I had the Nahum Serato monster team and we would have guided them to the straight path
for the fifth one, the user Allah Rasool, Allah, Allah, Allahu Allah Umina No biggie. And I was so deeply in our shahada, it was solid in what has to Allah, whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger, then he is with the one Allah, his favorite, the prophets, the martyrs, the righteous people,
and the truthful ones, and this is the best companionship five things you get. If you hold on to the instructions of Allah and the Prophet sallallahu sallam, the Companions generally speaking, they did not do excess in worship. Even the Prophet SAW Selim told them about the choleric people of innovation. He told them that when you see them you will see that your prayer is very little compared to the whole adage prayer.
And you will see that they fast more than you do.
But the promise of salaam called the courage the dogs of the Hellfire.
So you closeness to Allah, your righteousness is not by how much you do. It's not about quantity, it's about quality. Do you follow the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in that? Do you pray as the Prophet SAW Salem prayed? Do you fast as the process fasted? Do you make liquor the way the Prophet Salam did? That's the criteria.
So if you can actually do very little deeds, but you can get so much reward if you follow the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. That's the secret in Islam. That's the beauty of Islam. Abu Bakr, one of the champion inserts our working lives and he says, Master Dr. Abu Bakr, Abu Bakr, Radi Allahu Allah McCafferty Salah when I
when I can be shaking, walked out of Abubakar did not excel and out perform all of the companions
due to excess prayer or excess fast, he wasn't he didn't pray the most among the companions. He didn't fast. So he didn't pray he didn't fast the most among the companions. They were among the companions, people who did more than Abu Bakr apparently did. But Abu Bakr is Eman ways outweighs all of their email.
And Abu Bakr is the best of all the companions. What was that? Another scholar comments on that and he says Abu Bakr excelled due to something that was in his heart,
in his heart sincerity to Allah subhanaw taala love Allah subhanaw taala and concern and love for the creation.
So generally excellence is not in how much you do
about quantity but its quality. Follow the Sunnah of the Prophet from Abu Bakr is known to be the most among the companions to follow the Sunnah of the Prophet Solomon every aspect, even when it sounded seemingly to contradict logic
with one issues straight after the death of the Prophet Salam, he sent the army of Osama Abu Zaid to a sham to fight the Byzantines. Although there were people who apostate it so I'm one of the companions told him you know we need people
We're here to defend Islam how you sending these people to the Roman to fight the Romans? He said I'm not I cannot take back an army that the Prophet SAW Selim commanded too much forward. So using calculations it doesn't work. But he said I can't just you know, a can't cancel a command from the Prophet saw somebody just can't do it.
And Allah give them victory by means of that because those who are poor stated when they realize that these people are fighting the Romans, they're sending an army to the Romans. They must have something even stronger in Medina. So they gave up
is the blessings of following the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. This is just a notion I wanted to share with you and the Shala will carry on with
